  • Eventador values support as a first class citizen, providing real hands on 24x7x365 support via Slack, email, and phone.
  • Eventador is the only SaaS stack (2019) built on Apache Kafka + Apache Flink.
  • The Eventador stack is truly heterogeneous - allowing customers to build streaming systems on best in breed systems - not just a "one software to rule them all" mentality.

Instant-On environments

Eventador has publicly available Fully Managed Kafka that you can try out to get a feeling for how Eventador works or build production quality clusters. This is a dedicated environment with a dedicated VPC per account but with a shared Console (control plane). Access is granted via ACL whitelist (DENY by default) to your applications. See the plans page for details and pricing.

Enterprise environments

Eventador.io also has a unique model where deployments reside in your AWS account. This is a dedicated environment, dedicated Console (control plane) per region, a VPC per deployment, and applications are VPC peered back to the environment. Access is granted via AWS security group rulesets. This environment design is well suited for enterprise accounts with specific data governance, privacy, and billing requirements. This design is sometimes called BYOA or Bring Your Own Account.

You can try Fully Managed Apache Kafka, Eventador ESP (Apache Flink) or Eventador Elements - contact sales for a trial account and/or demo. ESP and Elements are only available on enterprise plans. More complex and/or custom environments are also supported like replication, distributed schema registry, and more.

What is Apache Kafka?

Apache Kafka is an open-source stream-processing software platform developed by LinkedIn and donated to the Apache Software Foundation, written in Scala and Java. The project aims to provide a unified, high-throughput, low-latency platform for handling real-time data feeds. More from Wikipedia. Read the documentation here.

Apache Flink is an open source stream processing framework developed by the Apache Software Foundation. The core of Apache Flink is a distributed streaming dataflow engine written in Java and Scala. Flink executes arbitrary dataflow programs in a data-parallel and pipelined manner. More from Wikipedia. Check out the documentation here.

Flink and Kafka are commonly paired together to form a full fledge stream processing stack.
